Best Songs of the Week Featuring Dave East, The Weeknd and More
This week's top songs are highlighted by the ongoing beef between The Game and Meek Mill. Both rappers released scathing diss tracks over Young M.A.'s hit single "OOOUUU."
Meek Mill responded to The Game's "92 Bars" diss record with an "OOOUUU" remix featuring Beanie Sigel, Omelly and Takbar. "Durk checked you, Thug sonned you, Fif droppd you, Mac one’d you/Strippers turned rappers, look what we come to/You a faggot, my lady a never fuck you," Meek rapped on the track.
The Game was quick to respond with his own take on the "OOOUUU" called "Pest Control." Game took some shots at Beanie Sigel but spent most of the record gunning for Meek Mill. "You jumped Quentin Miller and now you don’t scrap/It was time to go at Drizzy and now you don’t rap/Ask your bitch, she know I beez in the trap/You gotta move out of L.A., I’ll put them Bs on your back," Game rapped.
This week wasn't all about diss tracks though. The Weeknd surprised fans by announcing a new album called Starboy. The singer revealed the LP would be released on Nov. 25, and got the campaign rolling by the dropping LP's title track featuring Daft Punk.
2016 XXL Freshman Dave East added to the anticipation for his upcoming project by releasing a new single called "Keisha." The storytelling of the record showed fans what they can expect on the Kairi Chanel mixtape which arrives Sept. 30.
Eardrummer artist Eearz also delivered one of the week's finest songs with "No Sleep" featuring Chief Keef. The melodic gem produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and J-Bo will appear on the Atlanta rapper's Eearz to da Streets Vol. 2 EP which is due out in October.
